This Photo Competition Was an Industry First, Awarding Prizes to Winners of Both a Judged Vote From a Panel of Wildlife Photography Experts, and a People's Choice Popular Vote; Prizes Included Two All-Expense-Paid Safaris for Two to Wilderness Camps in Bo

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - June 17, 2014) - B&H Photo is pleased to announce the grand prize winner of the B&H Wilderness Photo Competition as Jamie MacArthur's "A Splash of Blue" from the Birding category.

Jamie spent several days in a blind in the heat, getting bitten by insects, to finally get this shot. Congratulations, Jamie MacArthur, for a fine photograph that attracted the eyes of the judges by showing your perseverance in getting the peak of action with an uncommon bird. Jamie will be enjoying an African Safari for two, courtesy of Journeys Unforgettable and Wilderness Safaris, along with some new photo gear purchased at B&H with his $500 Gift Card. Jamie is from the United Kingdom, and we look forward to seeing the images that Jamie produces on safari in Botswana.

The other eight categories are comprised of skilled and artistic photographers, whose photographs were chosen from thousands upon thousands of entries. These are our semifinalists, and will each be receiving a $500 Gift Card from B&H Photo Video and Pro-Audio.

The B&H Wilderness Contest asks that you explore your world with a camera, and understand that without conservation, that which you photograph today stands a chance of not being photographed by the next generation. Conservation is about awareness, and your photographs and travel can make a difference.
